day 12 scan


I had my day 12 scan today. An abdominal one again. It showed 2 follicles on my right ovary, one measuring 14mm and the other 15mm. She also said the lining of my uterus was better this month, it was 4mm thick (?). Anyone know what the optimum thickness should be?

Considering that last month on 50mg I had no follicles to talk about I am feeling quite positive and pleased tonight. Hubbie has just showered and we are planning an early night!!

How does this compare to other people's day 12 scans? The lady who scanned me seemed quite positive but I would like to know was she positive for my sake and it is still not looking too hopeful. Do the follicles have to get to a certain size before they pop or does everyone's vary?

I was full of questions today and got loads of good info but I'd still like to know how this compares to other people's scan results. I know that info won't make me pregnant but I'd like to be realistic for this month as right now I'm so excited again!

I had one follicle of 18mm but can't remember my lining and it did work :)

Your follicles are mature from 18mm they "normaly" grow 2mm per day and pop somewhere between 18 and upwards. I can't remember for how long size wise they are mature.

Are you doing ovulation tests to check for LH surge?

My day 10/11/12 scans all had dif size follies depending on how I was responding. The follie needs to be over 20mm to pop on its own (usually at about 22 or so) but if you are using a trigger injection then they would give it at 18mm or more.
Optimum lining would be over 6mm. Don't worry you have time for it to thicken up a bit more before your follie pops.
If your follie follows "average" growth pattern then it will pop in 4 to 6 days time I would guess. Will you be having any further scans?

Hi Torisen and Rene

Thank you for answering my questions! I am so excited I feel like a kid again myself!!!

I haven't got any ovulation tests as i thought you couldn't really get an accurate result with them when on clomid? And I won't be having any more scans. I am getting my bloods done on day 21 and hoprfully they'll come back with a positive ovulation result!

Planning lots of early nights and fun!! Feels so worthwhile now that I know I might ovulate this month!!!!!!! just can't wait.

Hope life is being kind to you girlies too!
